Chesterfield head to Shrewsbury on Tuesday knowing their hosts will be a tough nut to crack.

Mickey Mellon’s side may have been held to a 1-1 draw at Bradford on Saturday, but centre-half Connor Goldson was the star man.

His job will be to try and quell the threat of Spireites’ hitman Lee Novak.

Novak enjoyed a frustrating debut during the 2-0 loss to Sheffield United.

However, with more training with his new teammates under his belt, he will be hoping for better luck at New Meadow.

Goldson won plenty of plaudits for his performance at Valley Parade on Saturday and his battle against Novak and strike partner Sylvan Ebanks-Blake will go a long way to deciding this contest.

LAST TIME THEY MET

Shrewsbury 0-0 Chesterfield (January 2011)

An uninspiring 0-0 draw over four years ago saw the Spireites’ lead at the top of League Two trimmed down.

Shrewsbury dominated possession but neither side made the breakthrough as spoils were shared.
